recently, i find myself diggin' in the crates over at junodownload more and more often, looking out for new music that's not made by the usual suspects that get blogged to death by everyone else. after mainly doing research in the dubstep area on there lately, as the sun comes out more and more i am now on the hunt for more uplifting and melodic disco and electro tunes and eventually came across something truly wonderful.
cinnamon chasers is the solo project of russ davies, nephew and son of ray davies and dave davies respectively, two founding members of the kinks. hot on the heels of legends such as giorgio moroder, vangelis and jean michel jarre as well as current synth wizards along the lines of alan braxe and junior boys, the london-based producer creates "a perfect blend of crisp electronics, pop based song structure and melodies with an 'indie' feel".
popular fans of cinnamon chasers include faze action and lifelike. less popular fans include myself, as i have listened to the beautiful uptempo dreamy melodic epic 'luv deluxe' 40 times in a row at work last week. and amazingly, now you can do the same!
cinnamon chasers - luv deluxe
stay tuned for the full length forthcoming on modus records and check out the cinnamon chasers for more downloads and a remix contest! i will definitely keep watching him!
